Tyronn Lue: Kay Felder is Cavaliers' backup point guard for now

In some rather notable news, Kay Felder is the Cleveland Cavaliers' backup point guard—for now.

The 5-foot-9 point guard will serve as the team's backup point guard for now, according to head coach Tyronn Lue, via Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com:

"Right now we'll say he's going to be our backup point guard for right now. We'll just see how the flow of the game goes, and what is going on in the game."

Following the release of Toney Douglas, the Cavaliers really only have two legit point guards on the roster. Iman Shumpert and LeBron James are both capable of playing the position, but the Cavaliers will likely look for another veteran point guard before the regular season starts on October 25th.

Mario Chalmers remains an option as a free agent, but he won't be ready to return to the court until November at the earliest. The team also has an $11 million trade exception that it can use.

However, until another transaction is made by the organization, expect to see a lot more of Felder in the team's backcourt entering the regular season.
